Wat am I doing
If you repeatedly criticize someone for liking something you don’t, they won’t stop liking it. They’ll stop liking you.

Important reminder that because virginity is a made-up construct, you are allowed to call yourself a virgin or not based on YOUR criteria for what defines virginity. If you have only had intercourse in the form of rape, you are allowed to still call yourself a virgin. If you have only had sex that…

“The bottom line is that saying there are differences in male and female brains is just not true. There is pretty compelling evidence that any differences are tiny and are the result of environment not biology,” said Prof Rippon.

“You can’t pick up a brain and say ‘that’s a girls brain, or that’s a boys brain’ in the same way you can with the skeleton. They look the same.”

Prof Rippon points to earlier studies that showed the brains of London black cab drivers physically changed after they had acquired The Knowledge – an encyclopaedic recall of the capital’s streets.
She believes differences in male and female brains are due to similar cultural stimuli. A women’s brain may therefore become ‘wired’ for multi-tasking simply because society expects that of her and so she uses that part of her brain more often. The brain adapts in the same way as a muscle gets larger with extra use.

“What often isn’t picked up on is how plastic and permeable the brain is. It is changing throughout out lifetime

“The world is full of stereotypical attitudes and unconscious bias. It is full of the drip, drip, drip of the gendered environment.”

Prof Rippon believes that gender differences appear early in western societies and are based on traditional stereotypes of how boys and girls should behave and which toys they should play with.

I tried a 2-D printer once, and the paper jammed.
So now I just painstakingly re-create my paper copies by hand, like a medieval monk.

"I couldn’t do something that requires training and skill on the first try without any training or skill so obviously it is a scam: A White Male Story"

This is my first 3d print. It’s supposed to be a square.
This is the tenth print.  (It’s got some primer on it already there)  What happened?  I calibrated it.  It wasn’t easy, it was frustrating, but I kept working until I figured it out.  I have a fussy printer.  However, most of the problems I was having would be fixed by the latest printers that are on the market now.
And you’ve seen what this head looks like now that it’s had it’s been filled and cast. 
But I’m an artist and a girl.  What do I know of these things?

I met my wife at a Star Trek convention. She was study abroad from France and spoke little English, and I didn’t know a lick of French. So, for the first few months of our relationship, we communicated by speaking Klingon.

Okay I’m not even a Star Trek fan but that’s beautiful.

THIS IS SUPER COOL THOUGH IF YOU UNDERSTAND HORSES. LIKE THAT NIPPING IS A GROOMING BEHAVIOR HORSE’S DO TO BOND AND TO MAINTAIN AND IMPROVE SOCIAL BONDS. SO THAT HORSE IS BASICALLY TREATING THE CAT AS PART OF THE HERD AND SUSTAINING THE FRIENDLY BOND.

IT IS SAYING, “this tiny horse is very tiny but we are friends. Look at my tiny friend.”
